Before Downing Street's last-minute announcement on Saturday, many of us were planning to spend Christmas somewhere other than within the same four walls we've come to know too well this year. However, with new restrictions now in place across many parts of the UK, you may well be facing an at-home Christmas dinner that you hadn't planned for; this last minute change may mean you're scrambling for a backup plan and, as restaurants remain closed, there's also no option to eat out. But do not despair, we're here to help! Whether you're spending the festive season by yourself, with flatmates, or with a significant other, there's no reason why Christmas shouldn't go ahead. Hawkker have put together a selection of food vendors still offering food and meal kit deliveries in time for the 25th, from three-course meals to arrays of sweet treats.
Rudy's Vegan Butcher's Christmas Meat Feast is a meal that would stuff Santa himself! This meal kit feeds four people, and is packed full of vegan meats, tasty vegetables and other delicious treats. You have until the 22nd at 7pm to pre-order for collection on Christmas Eve at their Islington location. Full details here.
What would the holiday season be without delicious, freshly-baked breads and baked goods? Bread Ahead are offering a click and collect service from their Borough Market, Chelsea and Wembley bakeries, as well as a delivery service across London. They also deliver six days a week, Monday-Saturday, so there's still time to order for Christmas! More here.
Giselle Richardson makes British-inspired, limited editions macarons, with a rotating menu of seasonal flavours changing every month. You can indulge in these delicious treats over Christmas, as long as you order before 11am on the 22nd. What's more, they're shipping nationwide! Find out more here.
Turkey who? Step it up this season with The Duck Truck's "finish at home" meal kits, perfect for Christmas Day. From duck confit to pancakes, all the work's already been done for you – you just need to heat it up, and enjoy! You have until the 23rd to order any of their meal kits in time for the big day, which you can do here.
Looking for something a little different from the old turkey and sprouts? Why not try ramen? Each kit serves two people and offers different flavours (including a vegan version!) to suit all palates. The kits come with everything you need to turn yourself into a ramen master and make awesome Shoryu at home in just 10 mins. Click here to find more.
